If you really experienced the wholeness of you, lack would be impossible. This world is what the difference between having and not having is. And all the Course will ever tell you is that giving and having are the same. That’s why whenever I feel stretched or pushed up against myself, I give. Always give.
“Wholeness is the perceptual content of miracles. They thus correct, or atone for, the faulty perception of lack.”
“A major contribution of miracles is their strength in releasing you from your false sense of isolation, deprivation and lack.”
Do you see how Jesus is telling you that He knows that you DO feel isolated, deprived and without? But it’s simply a false idea you are holding about yourself. This is why the Mind training is so important because you are ALWAYS and ONLY ever dealing with past ideas about yourself. And what’s the most you can say about them? THEY’RE OVER!!!
“Miracles arise from a miraculous state of mind, or a state of miracle-readiness.”
“The miracle is an expression of an inner awareness of Christ and the acceptance of His Atonement.”
That’s nice, “His Atonement”. Now if you don’t separate yourself from that, that cannot not be YOUR atonement. And all that takes is the simple acceptance that the atonement IS accomplished. And so you become the expression of the extension of the miracle of the atonement.
“A miracle is never lost. It may touch many people you have not even
met, and produce undreamed of changes in situations of which you are
not even aware.”
That is nothing but the idea that to give and to receive are ONE, in truth.
You have to include yourself in and you have to give in order to know that you have. This is not a difficult Course BUT it IS different. Don’t keep expecting the same old results from what is already over. Maintain your conscious contact and dependence on God and allow it to be brand new, each moment. What have you got to lose?
